JKNPP holds protests seeking restoration of Dogra State
Internet ban, Toll Plazas, growing unemployment, symbolize BJP’s betrayals: Harsh
8/5/2020 10:05:02 PM

JAMMU, Aug 5: Expressing anguish over the downgrading of J&K State to Union Territory on 5th August, 2019, the activists of NPP held massive dharnas at District and Tehsil Headquarters today and lodged their strong protest against the BJP led government at the centre.
The activists raised slogans of “Dogra rajya ka darja bahal karo, bahal karo”, “4G internet bahal karo, bahal karo”, Jammu Prant ke sath bhed bhav nahin sahenge, nahin sahenge”, “Toll Plazas band karo, band karo” Berojgar yuvaon ke saath insaf karo, insaf karo” etc. The protests were held at dozens of places all over Jammu province with protestors wearing red ribbons to mark the dawn of a new change in the erstwhile State of J&K. Meanwhile, Harsh Dev Singh submitted a detailed memorandum to Lt. Governor seeking restoration of statehood to J&K.
Addressing media persons in Jammu at the protest venue, Harsh Dev Singh said that the Jammu region had witnessed all round deprivation during the last one year with development activity having come to grinding halt and employment avenues having almost eclipsed. There was all round dis-enchantment amongst the youth, students, unemployed and underemployed youth, traders, professionals, farmers, labourers besides the civil society over the anti-people decisions taken post Reorganization of the State. While the 4G internet ban had completed one year, there was not a word from the government for restoration of the said facility. The major developmental projects either had been stalled or abandoned with the BJP government maintaining a criminal silence over the fate of Artificial Tawi Lake Project, Jamboo Zoo, Smart City Mission, Panjthirith Multi Parking Complex, Beautification of Raghunath Bazar Project, Development of Tawi on Sabarmati Pattern and the Mubarak Mandi Project.
Ridiculing the BJP for holding celebrations despite growing public anger, Singh said that saffron party’s conduct deserved mourning rather than mere condemnation. He called upon the civil society to support NPP’s crusade for justice to varied sections of society.
Identical protests were held at Udhampur, Samba, Kathua, Bani, Reasi, Poonch, Rajouri, Ramban, Ramsoo, Doda, Kisthwar, Banihal, Vijaypur, Ramgarh, Khour, Ramnagar, Majalta, Khoon, Billawar, Hiranagar and Bishnah.
